Any Quilters Among You?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Beauchamp 2nd month 11, 2013. 25 Replies

I find working with needle and thread to be mostly soothing by the light of day.  I listen to bird sounds and the quietness of nature.  I listen to thread ever so gently being pulled thru cloth.  I…Continue

About Me
I'm a very quiet simple "Plain" woman living and working in a world I don't understand. Until I can retire from this I surround myself with things I love such as quilting, reading, gardening, my pets and following a simple lifestyle. I would love and enjoy being able to speak with all of you who are more in harmony with my beliefs and lifestyle.

Oh dearest Friend, Chris,

 

Thank thee so much for thy kind comment! And for welcoming me. I appreciate it! It means so much to me!

 

You are a sweetheart too and also my dearest Friend!

 

I am hugging you too through this comment.

 

Love and Light,

Thy Friend in Christ Jesus,

 

Marian

My dearest Friend,

Eventually, I hope to have some pictures loaded onto my page. Timothy will be delighted to assist me with this! He is a dear. It is a bit of a trying age, as she is transitioning from toddler to more of a teen, and this has been difficult on me along with homeschooling. I wouldn't trade it for anything though. She is a blessing!

My Friend and friend, I have longed for this day for a very long time myself. It is providence! For months I have longed to write to you, until I mentioned it to Timothy. 

I have been asking God for a long time, just like you mentioned to me about having a lack of a good friend, and I just nearly gave up. Then when I heard about you, through my husband, I longed to be able to converse with thee. Yes, I agree, that you are the answer to my prayers as well!! I see this as a great privilege, blessing, and honour!!! :)

I am so glad thee gave me wise counsel about my husband's wisdom teeth/oral surgery. That was so sweet of you. I'll keep a very close monitor on his situation in light of thy solicitude! This a great help to me, dear friend!! :):)

Oh, and I'm still praying for your kitty, though I've been quite busy, and am ashamed to say, I've forgotten his name. 

May the peace of God's Christ, shine abundantly upon you and Within you this day!

Hilda

Hello, dearest friend, Chris.

What a blessing this is, that you have accepted my invitation! Oh I am so glad to be able to get to know thee better. I have my husband, Timothy, to thank for this opportunity. I still do not know my way around here too well. So this is a an honour I equally share with thee! :)

Timothy, my husband, went through the surgery very well. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts regarding that! He has been sleeping somewhat better now. Although the last two nights, due to pain, he has been awake until after midnight. So it is mostly pain that is causing him to be unable to sleep now. There for a while, we were back into our old routine: 10 pm to bed and 5 or 5:30 am awakening. I feel as though once the pain has subsided more, our schedule will improve, and then his and my health will also improve! 

Yes, my daughter, who loves her middle name, Marian, is 11. She will be 12 Third month 20th. I hope to be able to correspond with thee more, as time affords. 

May the God of all comfort be thine today and every day! Peace be to you and yours!

Your elated Friend,

Hilda

Thanks again. I am just trying to give the Quaker context.

Thanks! I'm having trouble organizing my pictures and giving them titles.

Yes Chris ~ we have three children and four cats. The picture was taken in a rare moment of calm :^)

I was recently looking at a book of quilts by Kaffe Fassett - aahhhh!, beautiful! Inspiration.

At 4:22pm on 1st mo. 9, 2013, Amanda Manouvrier said…

I am amazed that people didn't appreciate your efforts - when I had my girls a distant cousin in Australia handmade me two quilts and I was astounded by the care and the craftsmanship and I will treasure them forever. I make quite a lot of my girls' clothes, but I also knit and, as of quite recently, crochet. I make quite a lot of my things using recycled clothes, or remnants. I really enjoy making useful and (hopefully) beautiful things from things which are outgrown/unwanted. Quilting has been on my list for ages......but there haven't been enough hours in the day yet! I shall have to ask you for advice....

At 3:56pm on 1st mo. 9, 2013, Amanda Manouvrier said…

I'd love to see some pictures of your quilts sometime, Chris! Am so glad that you have joined the sewing group, Amanda

At 12:43pm on 1st mo. 9, 2013, Amanda Manouvrier said…

Thank you Chris and I look forward to getting to know you. I notice that you are a quilter ~ something I have always meant to try. Have you joined the sewing group which has recently started? Warmest wishes, Amanda
